Nearly Half of Windows 7 Users Run 64-Bit Version, Says Microsoft

New figures released by Microsoft shows that nearly half of all Windows 7 installations are running on the 64-bit version of company’s flagship operating system (OS). Windows Communications Manager Brandon LeBlanc revealed the figures on the official Windows Team Blog late last week:

“As of June 2010, we see that 46% of all PCs worldwide running Windows 7 are running a 64-bit edition of Windows 7.”

LeBlanc noted that this represents a huge increase in favor of 64-bit Windows. Three-and-a-half years after its release, Windows Vista saw only 11 percent of PCs in the world running the 64-bit version, while the situation with Windows 7 is one in which “running a 64-bit OS is becoming the norm.” Not surprisingly, less than 1 percent of 64-bit Windows XP machines are installed.
